BONUS MORNING UPDATE!
The Daily Mail’s “incomparable”* Richard Littlejohn has written a book about his life**, which is being serialised in the paper. I’ve been sharing bits and pieces*** over on the Pointless Letters twitter page and thought it might be nice to come and share the magic**** here on Tumblr, too.
WONDER as Littlejohn asks what his dad would make of the world today! (my theory is he would look crestfallen and say “Oh Richard, son, I love you, but why do all these people hate you? What did you do, son?”)
THRILL as Richard reveals that he wrote the book because in a way, in a very important way, we are all Richard Littlejohn!
SHUDDER as the story of his birth gives way to a terrifying vision of the future!
LOOK A LITTLE SICK AND UNCOMFORTABLE as he passes comment on modern marriage and decides to use the opportunity to have a bit of a sneer at the idea of young women owning adult toys for their own pleasure!
Honestly, from what has been serialised so far, it’s like Alan Partridge has found a way to kick down the fourth wall and escape into the real world. I wonder if Littlejohn ever eats Toblerone?
* A word that can go two ways when you stop to think about it
** TL;DR - everything is shit now, there’s all these uppity foreigns and women and gays and everything, it was so much better back in the 50s when there were no uppity foreigns or women or gays or anything
*** Taking the piss
**** Take the piss
